Jasper Garvida SS11

Black

Everything I own appears to be black. I just purchased a new skirt online, it's black. I bought a peter-pan collared blouse at American Apparel, it's black. If you really wish me to continue, I could go on for hours. But to save you from the misery, I won't. What I will share with you is this amazing bag (that is certainly not black), that I wish to own.
At US$130 though, it probably won't see my wardrobe for at least another few months. And even then, it's highly unlikely. I still have it in my bookmarks bar so that I can drool over it every now and then though.

Windsor Smith

Last Thursday I went on a impulse and ended up purchasing these suede boots by Windsor Smith at MYER. They were seriously affordable ($99.95), so it was quite simple to talk myself into it. To top that off, they are the most comfortable shoes I have possibly ever worn. I decided to wear them to the wedding on Saturday and I was still doing the nut bush (don't laugh, it's a catchy dance) at 11pm, after nine straight hours of wearing them. Good investment? I certainly think so.

Dropping Hemlines

(via Mr Newtown)
Hemlines are dropping below the knee and more popularly, below the ankle. I particularly like Abbey Lee's take on the maxi skirt, by wearing the beautiful sheer version. The skirt allows us all to see those amazing legs that we wish we all had.

Aje.

Prices ranging from $125-$750 and will be in store at D├ęsordre soon. Check out their website for more details. The Morocco Dress (pictured just above) is a bargain at only $270, right? Seriously though, despite it's slightly high price (nearly a week's worth of my wages) I still want it. Oh well, at least I'm not trying to tell myself I need it. There would be some issues if I were..

Khaki: Rose, Brun & Vert

They're like mud. And yet, I want one! I have one question for you Chanel, how the hell do you make mud-coloured nail polish look so damn appealing? If anyone is up for sparing me about $40, I'll take the Khaki Rose thank you.

Lover

Lover's S/S Collection, "Untitled". Burnt Orange, Beiges & Creams dominate the gorgeous line of garments. I am so incredibly pleased with this collection, there isn't one thing that I wouldn't love to adorn myself with.

Dust Part II

Dust :: Part II featuring Bambi Northwood-Blyth for Mania Mania. Have you picked up on my slight obsession with her yet?

Surface to Air

If you're able to afford these babies, they're available here. For me though, I'll just sit here salivating over how perfect they are.

Excessive

I'm sure at least some of you have had that feeling of wanting to purchase something purely on the basis of it being excessive/almost too quirky? If not, maybe it's just me? My irrational urge to purchase extravagant items came across the most ridiculous (note: ridiculous in a good way) dress that I would never even wear and probably wouldn't be able to afford anyway. In saying that, I still drool over it and wish I had it in my hot little hands. Exhibit A:
It is the Aqua Teequin Mesh & Sequin T-Shirt Dress that you can purchase here from Asos.com. Enough of the crazy ideas of purchasing large squares of sequins to drape over your body and onto my slightly more rational side. I found a dress that I saw a while ago on Pixie Market (where it had sold out) for a more affordable price, but in a different colour. They had been selling the style in a lovely cream colour but I found it after it was all too late. In saying that, the navy colour they have on offer is still quite appealing and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to move my mouse off the "add to cart" button. I'll let you view the dress in all of it's glory, the cream (but sold out) version first.
The more I consider this dress, the more I actually realise that maybe the navy would have been a better purchase anyway. For example, it's much more practical due to the fact that it's darker and also it would add some colour to my wardrobe. If you can't tell, this is me trying to reason with myself, yet again, and talking my way into purchasing something I probably don't need but desperately want.
Ok, I should definitely stop now before I end up purchasing an entire wardrobe's worth of clothing. Oh and by the way, Spring has arrived in Sydney. Not just fashion wise, but also weather wise. The weather we're getting is so delightful and warm. It's that perfect combination of sunshine light wind with just a pinch of humidity (not too much or I'd end up with an afro). Ok, I'll stop typing now. I promise.
